Tsù Tunic by Sportive Plus

I’ve always had a preference for “princess cut” (also known as “empire waist” or “A cut”) tunics since I feel it’s the kind of cut that fits my silhouette the best. Sportive Plus’ princess cut has rarely failed me, from the Tsù tunic to the Xenon sweater (which also works well as a tunic by the way). READ MORE…

I discovered by accident the Rocky Ridge III skirt as I was shopping in an off-price department store.

Ashlynn Chiffon Poncho by SWAK Designs

We hardly ever associate summer heat and ponchos, which are traditionally thick and warm (to be confirmed next September in Peru, haha!). But since last spring, it seems that the light version of this garment is one of the biggest trends for 2016 ! With a more relaxed cut than a traditional button shirt, yet more stylish than the polo or t-shirt, the poncho adds a little Bohemian touch to most outfits, without making it too sporty, but allowing full comfort and ease of movement. The Ashlynn Chiffon Poncho is SWAK Designs’ answer to this year’s trend. READ MORE…

Because it’s definitely one of mine, especially when it comes to travel, as I’m usually very active and I walk around a lot to get the maximum out of every trip abroad! READ MORE…

Marla Tank Dress by SWAK Designs

As a backpacker, I try to remain open to as many opportunities as possible, activity-wise. And it’s not because I usually present a quite casual look that I don’t want to be ready for a special night! I often treat myself with the occasional fancy dinner/activity during my trips; often, in order to be able to do that, I need at least one appropriate outfit for the occasion! READ MORE…
